North Crestone Trail

Hiking in Crestone

The North Crestone Trail leads to the North Crestone Lake below Fluted Peak (13,554ft), or you can cross the ridge to the eastern slope over either Comanche or Venable passes.

From the North Crestone Campground, USFS Trail 744 follows the north side of North Crestone Creek for 1.5 miles to a three-way junction: on your right the southernmost trail continues for 3 miles to North Crestone Lake; the middle trail, USFS Trail 746, passes north of Comanche Peak before dropping into the Wet Mountain Valley on USFS Trail 1345; and the northern choice, USFS Trail 747, heads toward Venable Pass.
